Although I haven't tried it myself, my understanding is that it should be
possible to use a plugin built within a multi-module project in some of the
other modules when using Maven 3.x. This is not possible with Maven 2.x
though. However, it requires the plugin to be built before the modules that
uses it (which the reactor should be able to calculate, unless there are
some circular module dependencies).
